Tips to Keep Your Carpet Clean this Summer

We know that while summer brings outdoor fun it also brings indoor stains. If you have carpeting then you know how difficult it can be to keep up with the dirt and mud that is constantly being tracked through your home. Without proper maintenance, your carpet can start looking pretty bad pretty quick. Here’s a few quick tips from Buddy to help your carpets looking fresh this summer and throughout the year.

1.  Strategically Use Mats & Rugs

Place welcome mats at every outdoor entrance. This will help keep the grime on the mat and not on your carpets. Use area rugs to cover high traffic areas. Using rugs and mats not only helps with excess dirt build up, it can extend the life of your carpet.Keep Shoes Off Carpet

2. Keep Shoes Off Carpet

The less you use shoes on your carpet, the better. It may seem inconvenient to kick off those shoes, but it will save your carpet in the long run.

3. Vacuum Regularly

This is one of the most important parts to maintaining your carpet. Be sure to especially vacuum high traffic areas. The longer dirt has a chance to settle into your carpet, the harder it will be to remove on your own.

If you keep up with your regular maintenance your carpets will last a lot longer. However, no amount of cleaning can replace the results you’ll see from a professional cleaning. Investing in regular professional cleaning can make it much easier for you to maintain your carpets so that you can spend more time enjoying the activities of summer.
